    I realize they are both merely symbols meaning different things to different people.

    This is ridiculous, it's the American flag for Christ's sake.
    This has nothing to do with the flag.

    This has to do with personal items, regardless of what it is.

    It's just a sticker, take it off.

    No such provisions were made for it in the policy, however, and there is only a limited capacity for an administration to make such provisions (if it can at all). Because then it can be alleged it is about the persons and not the symbols.

    Problem is, the guy with the Crescent Moon can make any number of arguments as to why he is being faulted and the guy with the American flag is not. That they are anti-commonsensical won't matter once we are out of common sense and into law.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Intersting. So, how do you justify any objection or rebellion against any rule anywhere?
    No, if there is a problem with a rule, the option is to change the rule. If the rule is there,and you break the rule, you are accepting the consequences of breaking that rule.

Redress, you're losing credibility fast, really fast. Make me want to puke how liberals hide behind regulations to spew their hate while defending the dismantalization of the Constitution. Hypocrites all of them.
    Where have I impugned any one? Where have I commented on boy scouts? Where are you coming up with this crap?

    This has nothing to do with it being a flag sticker, and everything to do with an easy and sensible rule that one guy cannot be bothered to follow.

    It's nice seeing you post something more than your usual 4 or 5 word posts, but you only added hyperbole and exaggeration with the extra length. There is no constitutional issue here, ho hiding behind anything. The guy is in the wrong because he chose to disobey a simple rule, and further in the wrong because he chose to use the media to make a big deal out of it, and is trying to hide behind the flag to protect his rulebreaking.

    Any rule that applies to all and is enforced over all is not illegal. Since the reason that this extreme rule was created is because there was a “racist” cartoon posted on a locker.
    The fire department could have said that flags are allowed but what flags? American ok ! Black power ? Not so ok since that is considered racist by certain people. How about the Irsh flag ? In many North East states the Irish control the fire departments. What about the Gay flag ? If someone is very religious that could be an affront to them.

    The department could have said only American flags can be attached to lockers. OK fine ! What size ? 3x5 inched 4x6 inches, 12 x 16 !!!

    As someone else has said, common sense should have prevailed but it did not.

    It would look very boring and Commie/Fascist to have only American flags on lockers, as if all the firefighters are very good obedient servants of the great America, know no other, America greatest nation in all world, glory be to America!
